Tan Hamlet GALLERY

Hypoplectrus randallorum

the Tan Hamlet is the second most common hamlet seen while snorkeling. Most often they will be below ten feet deep, but occasionally a bit shallower. Recognizable by their large ventral fins and their humped back. Their average length is 4 inches. Like other hamlet species, the juveniles have 2 white spots in a black band just in front of their tail fin. (See 1st picture)
